Apricot Flaxseed Muffins – Eating Made Easy

Apricots are one of my family’s favorite fruits, not only because of their taste but because they’re a sign that summer is just around the corner.

When these sweet little gems show up at our markets in mid-May, we start buying them by the crate. Most get eaten as-is, but I also try to stash a few for crisps, baked oatmeal and of course, muffins.

I’ve made all sorts of stone fruit muffins over the years, from bran to cornmeal to streusel. But these Apricot Flaxseed Muffins are my current favorite.

Unlike cake-style muffins, these are nutty, nutritious, and not overly sweet. Sure you can top a warm one with vanilla bean ice cream (not that I’ve done that!) – but they also make the perfect portable breakfast or snack. They’re packed with nutritious flaxseed meal, which gives them their nutty flavor as well as a hearty dose of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

You could definitely make these muffins with nectarines, peaches, or plums. But this time of year, I’m partial to apricots since their season is so short and something I can’t help but savor.
